I can't believe it's been over a year that we started the SUGAR AND SPICE DESIGN TEAM !!! where did that go.?????
I've decided this year to go it alone !!! There's lots in the pipeline and I'm sure it's not the last you're going to see from these great girls, it's been a great journey for some of them as well (I hope) as some of them didn't even have blogs !!! and they now have followers of their own - super cool !!!
You even showed me how to do things with my stamps that I hadn't even thought of :)
So I'm sure you'll join me in saying THANKS for all your INSPO girls...we love you !!!

Some of you may know (or may not, as the case may be) ooo, lots of "mays" there !!! that I have been doing video tutorials for Sugar and Spice and also for Personal Impressions, it's such a great way of showing off their products, and I get to play, play, play, how cool is that ! don't worry it's not all sweetness and light there's blood, SWEAT and tears also, for those sadists among you LOL !!!
At the mo, I'm hooked on the Nesties Labels One this is the third one showing you another way of using them and within the next couple of weeks I've got a really GOOD one, that'll make you think "Now why didn't I think of that" !!
Here we go:-

When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
